Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)

Funds whose price changes depend on the changing price of an index or gold, oil or another product. ETFs are traded on the stock market just like shares. For example, when you purchase a share of an index ETF, you are purchasing a share portfolio which includes shares from various companies. Indexes can include multiple share categories, or they can group company shares from one or several countries. Indexes can reflect trends in a specific industry, such as technology, health or the financial sector. Advantages:

  • Liquidity: constant ETF trading on the stock market with usually larger trading volumes than separate shares
  • Lower bank fees than buying each share separately
  • A more diversified portfolio and extensive availability - investment opportunities in various financial instruments (shares, bonds, goods), countries and regions, as well as industries

Investment funds managed by others

You are also able to purchase investment funds and hedge funds managed by other world-leading fund managers, which gives you the opportunity to not only protect your capital from losing value due to inflation, but also to earn more. Bringing together the money of many different investors makes it possible to expand the spectrum of investment opportunities and implement the professional management of this money with the aim of earning money. When investing your money in investment funds, you may suffer losses as well as make money.
